Ben Affleck’s stunt double in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice recently shared his thoughts on Bruce Wayne killing in the film.

The older Bruce Wayne we are introduced to in Zack Snyder’s 2016 film and portrayed by Ben Affleck is one that is willing to stop at nothing to destroy Superman at all costs. While Batman eventually teams-up with Superman, he still takes a few lives in the warehouse sequence and throughout the film. This has stirred a lot of debate in fandom since many are strongly against the idea of the Dark Knight killing people.

Zack Snyder has defended the idea of Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne killing in Batman v Superman by telling people to “wake the f***k up.” Recently, Affleck’s stunt double in the film, Richard Cetrone, talked about the idea of Bruce Wayne killing by saying the following during ScreenRant’s recent Batman v Superman rewatch podcast:

“Batman deeply cares about his people. Every life is important to him.”

Cetrone went on to say that Bruce Wayne is still willing to cross that line in his war with Superman in the film.
